a) It is given that 36% of the Americans believe in ghost and 37% believe in astrology among 1,249 Americans.
The assumption for inference of independent samples:
The response variable should be categorical data.
The random samples should be collected independently.
The sample sizes should be large. That is, in each group the number of success points and the number of failure points should be at least 10.
Here the both proportions are calculated from same samples. That is, the both responses are dependent to each other.
Therefore, it is not possible to use independent sample test.
b) For doing the inference of independent samples, there should be two different groups in which the proportion should be known. In other words, it can be said that in each sample it should be known that how many people support astrology and how many people didnt

An educational psychologist wishes to know the mean number of words a third grader can read per minute. She wants to make an estimate at the 99% level of confidence. For a sample of 1869 third graders, the mean words per minute read was 25.3. Assume a population standard deviation of 5.3. Construct the confidence interval for the mean number of words a third grader can read per minute. Round your answers to one decimal place.
